The Construction Division includes units mainly engaged in the construction of buildings and other structures, additions, alterations, reconstruction, installation, and maintenance and repairs of buildings and other structures.
Units engaged in demolition or wrecking of buildings and other structures, and clearing of building sites are included in Division E Construction. It also includes units engaged in blasting, test drilling, landfill, levelling, earthmoving, excavating, land drainage and other land preparation.
The industries within this division have been defined on the basis of their unique production processes.

Construction activities are generally administered or managed at a relatively fixed place of business, but the actual construction work is performed at one or more different project sites.
